*Sports Garage does not have a rental fleet.  If you are traveling from out of town or looking for a short term rental, we would be more than happy to inform you about local riding and make rental recommendations and referrals.

*A pre-payment deposit will be taken at the time of booking. Refunds will be issued if cancellation is made 48 hours prior to reservation.  In the case of weather sufficiently severe that Boulder County closes local trailheads, the 48 cancellation policy does not apply.
